Following is the report by Officer-in-Charge George Kane of the Cold Spring Police Department for the month of June.
The month of June 2016 was as expected busier than normal for the Cold Spring police. Officers handled 100 calls for service in the village, the most notable being two burglaries and two attempted burglaries on June 7. This case is still under investigation. Another notable event was an arrest for DWI, which occurred on Route 9D on June 18 and another arrest made for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle which occurred on June 16.
Officers issued 126 parking tickets for various village code violations including limited time parking and expired parking meter at the Fair Street lot. Officers also issued 68 tickets to motorists for various vehicle and traffic infractions.
As the summer vacation season starts CSPD reminds residents to take advantage of the department’s Dark House program. After filling out a short form, officers will make regular checks of your home while you are away on vacation. The purpose of this program is to prevent and deter burglaries and give the homeowner peace of mind while they are away.
The Community Day celebration (July 3) went very well. Several thousand spectators came out to celebrate the Fourth of July. Just about every parking space in the village was taken. In the end only two incidents occurred; these were not related to the festivities. CSPD along with Putnam County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Little Stony Point beach to assist New York State Park Police with large, unruly crowd, which was dispersed after several beach patrons were issued tickets.
At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 3, CSPD arrested a male for Assault 3 after he punched a woman causing physical injury while they were exiting the Cold Spring Boat Club. The male was arraigned on July 4 in Village Court and remanded to the Putnam County Jail on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond.
